Working Group on food contact materials of the toxicological safety section of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SC-PAFF)

This working group consists of experts representing the Member States to examine particular issues related to the work of the toxicological safety section of the SC-PAFF. These experts assist the Commission in policy areas where it is empowered to implement legislation. The primary role is to give formal opinions on measures the Commission intends to adopt to implement EU legislation. Discussions may concern new legislation or amendments to existing legislations, but also matters concerning implementation and harmonised application of legislation. The working group meets approximately five times per year, but consultations can also be done in a written form.
